Many of the most popular plants we have today, from the top arboretums to the backyard gardens, originated from plants from far away places. A simple little twig holds all of the genetic information needed to make an exact copy of the parent. Propagating plants is a simple process; however, the mystique behind the practice prevents many gardeners from trying to do it themselves.
Today, Joe takes us to just outside of Raleigh, North Carolina to meet Brienne Gluvna Arthur. Brie is amongst a small group of nationally recognized young horticulturalists and propagators. Having studied horticulture and landscape design at Purdue University, she immediately started working as a full time propagator. 15 years later, Brie estimates she has added a million plants to gardens all across the country.
Joe and Brie take us on a journey to JC Raulston Arboretum, then back to Brie’s garden, where they give you the steps to correctly propagate plants, and show you just how simple the process really is.
